Why Give to the Annual Fund?

New plays are risky, but essential.  New plays capture the tenor of society and tell the unique stories of contemporary life.  And City Theatre continues to be a national leader in shaping the field.  But the ticket sales account for less than 30% of our annual budget – the rest comes from a generous network of community contributors.  We rely on the support of these donors so that artists have the opportunity to create freely and boldly.  The season’s F*7thGrade will forever be known as having its world premiere in Pittsburgh and YOU help make this possible.   From the earlies readings to stunning world premieres, our patrons and artists together develop the future of the American theater.   Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution today.
